Report from the Bug Squashing Party in Hildesheim Part 1

Yesterday the Bug Squashing Party in Hildesheim, Germany started. I think it's going well, according to the statistics of the #debian-bugs channel, we solved 11 bugs with direct uploads, 2 with uploads to delayed, 5 via package removals and opened/upgraded only one. So we are still fixing more than we break ;)

I'm especially pleased that some of the above was done by newbies. When we started to organise this BSP (well, when I started to watch Meike and Wolfram organise it to be precise), we where kind of worried by the experienced developer to newbie ratio, and already started to prepare introductions to packaging and similar adhoc sessions, but as it seems they don't seem to be needed. Good :)

So back to fixing stuff, good hunt!
